Notes and Editorial Reviews
"The subject here is the early life of Mahatma Gandhi and the text is a selection of verses from the Bhagavadgita, sung in the original Sanskrit and used as another strad in the complex repetitive web of sound. The result is undeniably powerful. The recording is spectacular."
